Dear typophile members,

I am new at OpenType, so if my question is a little basic, sorry in advance.

I am working on a OsF version from a font. Looking which characters
use to change from one style to the other I found in Adobe Jenson the next ones:

numbersign dollar percent zero one two three four five six seven eight nine cent sterling yen florin perthousand colonmonetary Euro

But I thought that probably there are some more characters
that should change at least in the vertical position, for example:

Minus multiply less greater etc.

My questions are:
. which is the recommended characters you should change in form or position
to make a complete OsF font style?
. is there any recommended link or tutorial for the correct way to write the otf replacement?

thanks in advance for your answers.

Best regards,

Dario I'm moving this to BUILD for you. -- No, I'm not.

This is probably a very subjective thing, I mean the desire to place some figures for old style use. You could also consider the small caps and what figures become too large when used with them.
